    At VTA, the safety of our passengers and employees is our number one priority.  We are continually evaluating processes, procedures and features of our system to improve safety and to adapt to changing needs. 

    We are also dedicated to educating the public about how we can work together to make sure everyone is safe around VTA’s bus and light rail systems. With that in mind, we have produced a short, new video to remind our passengers and even passers-by how to stay safe around the rails and buses.
